How to Make It

Step 1

 Place a rack in center of oven; preheat to 400°F. Rub carrots with 1/2 Tbsp. oil; season with 1 tsp. cumin, salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on a rack in a roasting pan. Whisk together remaining 1 1/2 Tbsp. oil, vinegar, chili powder, garlic, remaining 1 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper in a small bowl. Rub chicken all over with spice mixture; place onion and lemon wedges in cavity. Tie legs with kitchen string and place onion on top of carrots on rack. Add 1 cup broth to bottom of pan.

Step 2

 Roast chicken, adding more broth to pan as needed, until carrots are tender, chicken is golden brown, and an instant read thermometer inserted into center of a thigh reads 165°F, 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours.

Step 3

 Let chicken rest for 10 minutes before carving. Squeeze half of lemon wedges into pan juices; discard wedges and onion. Transfer carrots to a serving dish. Skim fat from pan juices. Carve chicken and serve with carrots, pan juices, and fresh lemon wedges.
